    Very nice Merle.
    I'm glad you posted that, I was going to make one of those and I forgot all about it.

    Thanks Bob

        Looking good there. Keep up the nice cutting.

          nice job...

          I built a smaller version of the P-51 whirlingig as a toy for my grandson, the wood part turned out good but I just couldn't get the paint right with all the details....

                  Great job on the plane. A friend of mine would love something like that. Thanks for sharing.

                    Great job on the P-51 Mustang! I have been wanting to do that one also. I made the P-38 whirligig for my dad and he has it 'flying in his back yard proudly.

                      Nicely done, Merle. Looks like a neat paint job - I hate painting

                        Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. ūü§™ We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole. I tried to sign onto our bank tonight and it is ‚Äútemporarily...

                        My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

                        New here and looking for some help and guidance on scroll work and saws.
                        I have a Hegner M25S and have recently made some upgrades and would like to improve the blade clamping. So looking for ideas and help.

                        Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                        Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
